Senzo Meyiwa Trial: Adv. Mshololo Says NPA Violated Her Client’s Constitutional Rights

Advocate Zandile Mshololo, representing the fifth accused in the murder trial, Fisokuhle Ntuli, has faulted the state’s failure to disclose the second docket in the footballer’s2104 murder.

According to Mshololo, who popped into the limelight following her taking up Ntuli’s case, the failure to disclose the second docket violated her client’s constitutional rights. And, of course, she’s seeking redress.

She had filed an application on Monday asking the presiding judge, Tshifhiwa Maumela, to record what she called the “irregularities” that had denied her client a fair hearing in the highly publicized murder case that has dragged on for years.

According to Adv. Mshololo, but for the non-disclosure of the second docket, her client would have objected to the charges preferred against him and put up a plea explanation. The content of the second docket shows that the National Prosecution Authority (NPA) has recommended other suspects for prosecution in the murder case.

The second docket had recommended Kelly Khumalo, her sister, Zandi Khumalo, her mother, Gladness Khumalo, Longwe Twala, the son of renowned music producer Sello “Chicco” Twala, Tumelo Madlala and Mthokozisi Thwala, both of whom were Meyiwa’s childhood friends, to be charged for murder and for defeating the ends of justice.
